Bright Orange Mammatus Clouds Bring a Spot of Colour to English South Coast

Mammatus clouds combined with a fiery sunset to create a spectacular afternoon scene for residents of Littlehampton on the English south coast on March 11.

This video taken by runninghead360 shows the “incredible rare” clouds being lit up by the setting sun.

The clouds form typically due to turbulence within a cumulonimbus cloud and usually form due to unstable and stormy conditions, according to the United Kingdom’s Met Office. Credit: runninghead360 via Storyful
